Welcome to the Totally Techniques International Design Team blog hop! I am Lynsay Mahon, from Edmonton, Canada, and you have just arrived here from the talented Annette Elias from The Netherlands.
This month we are focusing on a technique called “Glitter Splatter.” The basics of the technique are:
- Mix together Liquid Multipurpose glue and water in a container.
- Pick up some of the mixture with a paint brush or aqua painter.
- Flick the mixture onto the paper.
- Sprinkle glitter over the glue splatter and allow to dry.
- Be sure to wash the aqua painter well to remove any excess glue.
On my card, I wanted to create a feeling of water in the background. To do this, I used sponge daubers to sponge three colours onto Shimmery White Cardstock: Pool Party, Mint Macaron, and Coastal Cabana. Then I sprayed water onto it to allow the colours to blend together. Once the cardstock was dry, I followed the instructions as listed above, with one exception. Instead of using just straight glitter, I mixed together a combination of gold glitter and gold embossing powder. After I sprinkled the combo onto the splatter, I used my heat tool to emboss it. This created some texture in the splatter!
For the second card, I wanted to use the same technique but to create the feeling of a night sky:
I used the glue mixture to paint the edge of the moon to add some shimmer to it:
I loved trying this technique! I can definitely see me using it more!
